Marker Short trip [5:05 AM]
Palm Beach Post reports: 'Dave Wannstedt, 11-5 in his first two seasons as Miami Dolphins coach, has crossed the line. Suddenly his management style is too much philosophy and not enough fire.

Marker Dolphins brace for cold [5:04 AM]
Florida Today reports: 'The weather forecast has been changing all week, from a low of 19 degrees with snow to a high of 36 and cloudy. Either way, it's not going to be all palm trees and suntan lotion at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Just call them Frosty the Snowmammals.'

Marker Spikes joins Brown in Pro Bowl [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I think out of the past three or four years I've been playing good ball. I think a lot of it is politics. A lot of it is who's winning and who's not. Who's hot and who's not.

Marker Determined Henry refuses to take a breather [8:54 AM]

Marker Two Bills going to Pro Bowl [5:20 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“Even though we didn’t do quite as well (as a team), this was a piece of something I wanted to do as a personal goal. It eases the pain a little, but once it’s over it’s (not making the playoffs) still going to hurt.”'

Marker Will McGahee play? He won't say [5:12 AM]
Palm Beach Post reports: '"I mean, you can just tell week by week he's not favoring his knee or nothing like that," Bills linebacker Takeo Spikes said.

I was like, 'He's getting real close to playing form again.' "'

Marker Quartet of Dolphins on Pro Bowl team [5:10 AM]
Naples Daily News reports: 'With the Dolphins facing playoff elimination with either a loss to the Bills or a Denver win Sunday, making the Pro Bowl is a little bittersweet, even for Ogunleye. "It's coming at a bad time," Ogunleye said. "I really feel that we should be a lot better as a team and hopefully, we can get these next two wins. Getting in the playoffs would make this a lot better. I would honestly give this award away if we could get into the playoffs."'

Marker Ex-'Cane McGahee likely won't play Fish [5:09 AM]
Naples Daily News reports: '"He's made a lot of progress," Bills coach Gregg Williams said. "He really has. We made the decision to move him up onto the active roster so we could work with him throughout the remaining part of the season. We will evaluate him at the end of every week whether he can add something into one of our packages to where he could help us win a ballgame and also give himself a chance to play in live competition. But we're not going to jeopardize the team, nor him, if everything is not fully 100 percent in both areas, be it mentally and be it physically."'

Marker Holiday cheers turn to jeers [5:08 AM]
